In the modern feeding practices, feed additives have assumed a position of prime importance in poultry nutrition to meet the global requirements. They not only stimulate growth and improve feed conversion efficiency but meliorate the health of birds too by providing a physiological benefit beyond the provision of basic nutrients. Because of the growing concern over the transmission and proliferation of resistant bacteria via the food chain, the European Union (EU) in 2006 banned antibiotic growth promoters to be used as feed additives in poultry nutrition. Therefore, many non-therapeutic alternatives are being used that could help normal development of physiological functions so as to maximize the production performance of the bird. This book brings into the fore the beneficial properties of one such alternative namely organic acid. The organic acids and their salts are generally regarded as safe and have been approved by most member states of the EU to be used as feed additives. This book is a must-have for nutritionists, researchers, teachers, students and farmers associated with the field of poultry science and for general masses as well.
